The Goleta Valley and Santa Ynez Valley Libraries Group is pleased to announce that Hilary Johnson has been hired as the new Branch Supervisor for the Buellton Library. She started in the position on August 19, 2019.
For the last three years, Hilary has worked as a Library Technician at the Santa Barbara Public Library. She began at the Solvang branch and was in charge of the twice weekly Storytimes, turning that into a successful program. She then moved to a full-time position at the Santa Barbara Central Library. Her experiences solidified her passion for public libraries. With the expansion of the Goleta Valley Library Zone taking over management of the four libraries in the Santa Ynez Valley area, it was important to fill the Buellton Library Branch Supervisor position with someone who is enthusiastic and passionate, both of which describe Hilary.
“Hilary has several years of pertinent experience in Santa Barbara public libraries that make her the perfect choice for the Buellton community,” said Allison Gray, Goleta Valley Library Director. “Hilary is especially talented at working with families – her story times for young children were famous in Santa Barbara!”
